This workshop is intended for graduate and undergraduate students, early career researchers, professionals already established their field as well as anyone who wants to have access to the three “keys” to success – communication, confidence and commitment.

Giving women, especially students, access to successful women executives in science and applied superconductivity will aid in the pursuit and advancement of successful careers in science and engineering fields and offer exposure to real life applications of applied superconductivity.
